Thanks jbgroby! I tried to get the factory yellow matched based on the name of the color, the PPG number and a section of fender from the original paint job that was hidden from the elements.

Now that, I'm unsure of. Like yours, I am used to seeing the 2 toned, where the white is on the top, so it's white any ways.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Not today, but my brothers and I installed new bed wood, mounted the fuel cell and made straps for the cell. Used 3/4 mdo plywood because it was available, stainless carriage bolts. Nothing fancy but the truck is maybe worth $200 now.
I put my tools in the bed and am driving it 90 miles round trip today for work.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Did a few things this past week. Made a delete plate from a old finned valve cover and installed. Finished painting my drivers door with a distressed look (still have the rest of the cab to go), plus installed my Lokar shifter and Porter hood hinges. And last but not least, working on my center console, I am using from a sportster tank with Joe's Racing Switches.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Hey lowslow, is that bedliner spray in your engine bay and firewall? If so did you have to do anything special for the heat? Looks good!

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Raptor bed lining was applied about a year ago. No problems so far, but this truck is driven very little.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Right on, I've looked up some threads on this and it seems everyone is divided on it, but I definitely like the look and will probably go for it once it gets a little warmer!

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Re staining the Bed. Previous stain was just
home brew for "aging" the wood
And distress. This stain turned out a bit
too dark....I'll give a few days before I think about
Trying to lighten it a bit.

That's really cool. Is that for functional purposes? What are you planning on putting on there?

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Last couple months got the engine install done, still trying to get carb. to run right, exhaust with Purple Hornies, way too loud, new brakes, rebuilt wheel cylinders and master cylinder, new wheel adapters 2" spacers for newer dually wheels, mounted new tires, gutted interior, seat is being upholstered right now, installed sound deadner, new fuel sender and tank. Old sender didn't work, pulled out and it looked like a boat anchor at the bottom of the ocean for 20 years, tank was all rusty too with a 1/4" hole rusted through the back about 3/4 the way up. Installed new gas tank neck gasket from Classic Heartbeat.
